    Science NewsThese DNA tool can find your ancient people

    While studying the DNA strands, scientists have created a DNA tool which can exactly identify ancient populations. The tool may be used to test an individual's similarity to ancient people who once existed on the earth. Meanwhile, researchers confirm that the ancient DNA study requires a lot of information to classify a skeleton to a population or find its bio-geographical origins.
